Details

With notes of chocolate, dark fruits and of course a generous hit of whisky, Ola Dubh 18 is the result of a collaboration between Harviestoun Brewery and Highland Park Distillery. Harviestoun's award winning Old Engine Oil is aged for up to half a year in barrels which once held Highland Park 18 Year single malt whisky, which was named Best Spirit in the World not once but twice! Perfect for a special occasion.

Brewery Info

Harviestoun are about as Scottish as you can get - based in Clackmannanshire, they’ve been brewing small batch craft beer for over 30 years. They’re extremely innovative, and successful - rather impressively for a UK brewer, they’ve been a well-respected player on the US craft scene since 1999.

One of their most famous brews - Old Engine Oil Ola Dubh - is aged in whisky barrels and they’ve also created a special edition beer - Bitter & Twisted Zymatore - aged in gin and Pinot Noir barrels. For delicious session ales and lovely Scottish heritage, you can’t go wrong with Harviestoun.

I compared it with the base Old Engine Oil and the barrel gave it so much more depth. Smoky, chocatelty and coffee notes.
When the half & half becomes one!

This packs a pretty smoky punch considering it's the elder statesman of the Ola Dubh series! However, this power is slightly one-dimensional, and overall I prefer the more balanced, if a bit tamer, 16 year old for regular 'dramming' :)
